COSI - The Cognitive Simulation Potential Applications How COSI works This is a usual Power Point Presentation. Use Mouse-Clicks or the Hyperlinks to proceed. System Architecture
A simulation in COSI consists of a VISIO drawing that can be dynamically simulated in COSI COSI just needs the Start-element, the end-element and the ending conditions... And the Direction of propagation
COSI then reads in the model, as this flowchart for instance, that then can be simulated. See here for other potential applications
Each element of the model has to be specified regarding the ergonomic, cognitive and contextual realization before the simulation can start.
The analysis button brings up an analysis sheet for the element in order to describe the instances that should be considered during the simulation. Like... The profile of the person of interest. The environment or the System to be simulated.
Then you run the simulation...
The drawing will be prepared for simulation and...
... the simulation starts, indicated by coloring the element that is currently processed
Green means the element has been processed at least once. Red means the element is currently processed.
When the end condition is fulfilled, COSI shows the results regarding the reaction times and errors to be expected as well as the contextual condition that drive the reaction time and the errors
System Architecture COSI uses MS VISIO with remote access via the Visual Basic interface to VISIO COSI is programmed in VB 6.0 COSI therefore gives the flexibility of any simulation model that be written in any Unified Modeling Language (UML) that VISIO can represent.
COSI Program (in Visual Basic) VISIO Application Remote Access Layer Simulation Layer User Request
Even during simulation, VISIO can be accessed by a double-click in COSI and the model can be changed
Potential Applications COSI can model communication processes... neural networks... workplace layouts... economic or strategic models and anything you can imagine to model in VISIO...
Communication processes in complex tasks
Simple connectionism networks
Complex neural networks
Dashboard layouts or other workplace arrangements
Working procedures of nuclear plants, chemical plants, or any other industry
Organizational processes in manufacturing lines or any industrial, ecological or economic processes
